Beverage conglomerate Anheuser-Busch InBev has stopped airing Bud Light beer commercials with liberal political messages that featured divisive ultraliberals Amy Schumer and Seth Rogen. Sales took a dive since the commercials began. In one ad, the two complained that women are paid less than men for the same work, a point that has been repeatedly debunked since it’s been shown that women make nearly 100% of what men make when careful apples-to-apples job and work-hours comparisons are made. The lie makes for good Democrat propaganda to low information voters, but why spout this in a beer commercial?
No surprise that beer drinkers don’t want to be harangued with Democrat social justice warrior propaganda. I enjoyed this: “Comments on the video [of the beer commercial] have since been disabled on YouTube.” One can only imagine. Moreover, the two personalities spouting the nonsense are very polarizing. For example, Amy Schumer at a recent appearance went on an anti-Republican harangue that caused much of her audience to walk out. And Seth Rogen has compared the popular, pro-American film American Sniper to Nazi propaganda.
One can just imagine the scene around the conference table at a trendy New York City ad agency:
Hipster 1: None of us drinks beer, and no one we know does, so how do we pitch this stuff?
Hipster 2: I know, let’s get Amy Schumer and Seth Rogen. Everybody loves them and their politics!
Hipster 3: Great idea! And how about they complain about how women are oppressed by men!
Hipster 4: Another great idea! Man, we’re hot today! We’re gonna sell a lot of beer!
